I am thankful today for a seemingly insignificant thing. Something that requires little concern or prayer. Something that is partly covered by insurance but fully repaired with cash.
Today I am thankful that B-Boy's teeth are on their way to the land of STRAIGHT. You see- despite the fact that we prayed all our children would get Paul's teeth genes... B-boy has most certainly received every bit of his teeth from ME. Booooo!
So at the young age of 8, I took him to the Orthodontist and told them I wanted his treatment plan accelerated because our goal is to enroll him in school this fall and I would like to eliminate all teasing options up front.
And so yesterday, on Thankful Thursday, my son received the "CONTRAPTION" he'll have to wear 16 hours a day for the next 15 months. We kindly refer to his appliance as "the Beast". Poor little guy.
To fully gain your empathy... I've provided pictures.
